Isaac, Kezia, Ammi and Enoch Burke were banned for life from all student societies at the university on November 10th, 2014. According to the Burkes, the university alleged they were suspended for misuse of funds. However, the siblings have rejected the offer and are pressing ahead with their case, which is due to begin on Tuesday. “It has been over four years and six months since we were banned for life from societies at NUI Galway,” Enoch Burke said. They had been active members of two college groups, the Christian Union and Life societies, which promoted “teachings of Christianity” and “sanctity of human life”.
